The politics and economics of freebies

With the Delhi Assembly elections now only weeks away, a familiar political issue has reared its head, and judging from the latest exchange between Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh and Bharatiya Janata Party MP Gautam Gambhir, promises to linger all the way up to the day ballots are cast. Earlier in the week, Gambhir took aim at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwals “freebie” schemes alleging that the state government was negligent in doling out free utilities to the capitals electorate, suggesting instead that those who could afford to pay them, must pay at least nominal charges.

Delhis BJP chief Manoj Tiwari doubled down on Gambhirs accusation, going so far as to call AAPs schemes an “election gimmick.” AAP MP Singh was quick to retort to Gambhir accusing the BJP leadership of being “anti-development and regressive.” Singh also stated that AAP government, if voted to power for a successive term, would continue to provide the free services for another 60 months, stressing their importance especially as the nation itself experiences a prolonged economic slowdown. - Posted on : 18-January-2020

Earlier, a report claimed that the AAP’s list came as a shocker to Shastri as he was told Kejriwal to continue with his campaign for the party.

BJPs list of candidates likely today

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is likely to publish its candidate list for the forthcoming Delhi Assembly polls by 4.30 pm on Friday. It is reliably learnt that unlike municipal elections, when the BJP replaced all the sitting councillors, it is likely to retain all the candidates who contested in 2015 for the Delhi Assembly polls. A final decision on the list of candidates was taken by the BJPs central election committee headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday.

"I say almost 40 per cent will get a chance again. These are party workers who have been working for years. The 2015 elections were different," a senior party leader was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. According to insiders, no one above 75 years of age will be given a ticket. The list is also likely to include councillors.

In 2017, during the municipal elections, the BJP brought in fresh faces to counter the anti-incumbency, a strategy that yielded results and helped the party return to power in the municipal corporations.

"The list that will be released in the evening will be a mix of old contestants and councillors. No Member of Parliament would be contesting," sources told ANI.

The party leader further said that the party may not have a CM face in the run-up to the elections. "This time there would be none. Our sole focus is to win the election and we see a fair chance of gaining over the AAP. Better management and teamwork can end our exile of more 20 years," he said. - Posted on : 17-January-2020

Trouble for Alka Lamba

A lot is happening in the national capital in the run-up to the 2020 Delhi Assembly elections. While the Aam Aadmi Party is set to make a comeback to power, as per opinion polls, the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party have their eyes set on the Chief Minister’s post.

This election is also a bit about defected leaders and shifted allegiances. One such case is of Alka Lamba, the former Member of Legislative Assembly from Chandni Chowk Vidhan Sabha constituency.

Lamba switched to the Congress after being expelled from Aam Aadmi Party and was eyeing a ticket from the same constituency she won from in 2015. But former Congress Member of Parliament, JP Agarwal, claimed that it was his seat and he is the rightful contestant from the constituency. - Posted on : 16-January-2020
